About Us

It all started with our search for aged balsamic vinegar. . .

For three years, Chris and Barb searched the local grocery stores looking for aged balsamic vinegar and could not find what they were looking for. They figured they weren’t the only ones in the area who loved to cook and thought, “Why don’t we start our own business?” Culinary Conspiracy Specialty Food Store opened its doors in June of 2006 and since then, they have acquired a wide selection of hard to find and specialty ingredients including vinegars, oils, sauces, spices and a whole lot more.

Our mission is: “To be the leading specialty food retailer in the Central Kootenay Region, by providing the finest quality foods available worldwide, delivering exceptional service from friendly and knowledgeable food specialists, and presenting a unique and inviting shopping environment that incorporates consumer education.”

Our retail store is located at 610 Baker Street in Nelson, BC and if you are ever passing through our town, stop by and say ‘Hello’. We’d love to share the secrets of fine food with you.
